How Can I Circumvent College To Become A Criminal Defense Lawyer?
I Don'T Want To Go To A 4 Year School To Go To Law School, And Possibly Don'T Even Want To Go To Law School. Is There A Way To Apprentice Or Intern To Achieve The Experience Needed To Be A Lawyer?
There are a few circumstances that will allow you to skip some of the steps to becoming a lawyer. If you pass the ABA's first year law students exam, often referred to as the baby bar, you can get into a law school if you've had a minimum of 2 years college study.
If you don't want to go to school at all, you can take the baby bar AND an exam called the College Level Examination. If you pass both, you can study directly under a lawyer or judge for 4 years for an opportunity to take the Bar exam.
However, you should be aware that both of these situations are highly improbable. They're mainly meant for people that already have the knowledge or experience to be lawyers, but for one reason or another haven't met some of the basic requirements. Also, you should not anticipate finding a judge or lawyer to accept you very easily. Getting an unpaid clerkship with a judge is a highly coveted position for a law school student, and these positions generally only go to the top of the class, so the idea that a person with no experience who's just looking for a shortcut to becoming a lawyer will get one is not likely.
If you're looking for a quick way to becoming a lawyer, one of the two paths above is your best bet, but it will require an incredible amount of work. If you were just looking for the easiest way, go to a 4 year college, then to a 3 year law school.
What Is A Paralegal Role In The Law Firm?
That is 100% dependent on what type of law firm you work and how large the firm is that you work for. The simple answer to this question amongst those of us in the field is, "What don't we do?"
The only thing I do NOT do in my job is sign any legal documents and give legal advice.
I work in a small law firm and am the sole paralegal to three construction litigation attorneys. My experience is vastly different from that of a family law paralegal or even a civil litigation paralegal. I work in such a specialized office, that my experience will not be the same as your more mainstream paralegals.
I do everything from making coffee every morning, washing the attorneys' coffee cups at the end of the day (not because I am asked, but because they are good guys who are often too busy to remember), writing correspondence to clients, proofreading Motions, drafting Motions, drafting Orders, drafting discovery responses and requests, aiding the attorney in drafting Requests for Equitable Adjustments, keep up with local and state rule changes, contact the Court Administrator to set hearings, contact district and county clerks when needed, arrange Original Petitions for service with constable/sheriff, calendar deadlines, keep up with deadlines, ensure that the clients get copies of EVERYTHING sent out on their behalf, archive old files, maintain the file room, digitize old files, maintain our file cabinets, coordinate with opposing counsel regarding mediations, arbitrations, and hearing dates, prepare the attorney for trial, maintain trial software, I am the main user of our OCR software, etc.
The list is endless, really. It all depends on where you work. Larger firms sometimes have file clerks which means you may not have to deal with filing. We employ a cleaning staff, so if you work in a smaller firm that can't afford the luxury, you may have to clean toilets, the kitchen area, etc. If you work in a family law firm, you may not deal with discovery very often.
I hope that helps.
What Is The Best Degree You Can Get In Law?
If You Want To Make It Big At A Top Corporate Law Firm
If you mean the highest degree that you can earn in law, it is the J.S.D. (or S.J.D., depending on the institution), and it is equivalent to the Doctorate of Philosophy in Law (PhD or DPhil depending on the law school in UK).
CAVEAT: That degree is a research degree and is unlikely to assist you "to make it big at a top corporate law firm."
Similarly, there is a Masters degree offered in law (LL.M.). These programs are not common; however, they permit a student who has earned a J.D. to focus on a particular area of law. The most common specialty is in tax law.
CAVEAT: That degree represents a specialized course of study and is unlikely to assist you initially "to make it big at a top corporate law firm."
***That said, I believe that the "best degree you can get [earn] in law...[i]f you want to make it big at a top corporate law firm" is the J.D. degree at one of the most respected schools of law in the United States. The "tier one" schools include Harvard; Yale; Stanford; Boalt Hall - University of California -- Berkeley; Columbia University -- New York; University of Chicago; New York University; University of Pennsylvania; Northwestern University; University of Michigan -- Ann Arbor; University of Virginia; Cornell University; Duke University; University of California -- Los Angeles; Vanderbilt University; Georgetown University; and the University of Texas -- Austin.
Additionally, earning a joint degree in law (J.D.) and management / business (M.B.A.) may be attractive to "top corporate law firms."
The "top corporate law firms" will also be interested in how well you perform as a student at a "tier one" school of law. The higher that you rank in your class, the more attractive that you will be to "top corporate law firms." Also, such firms are interested in your writing skills. Thus, writing for the Law Review can add to your resume.
As to judicial or law firm clerkships, either can make you a more attractive candidate; and, if you are able to land a clerkship at "a top corporate law firm," working hard and effectively will help you land an entry position.
Thus, earning a J.D. degree at a "tier one" school of law; doing well as a student; earning degrees in both law and business / management as part of a joint J.D. / M.B.A. program; and earning a judicial or corporate law firm clerkship are amongst the indicators that "top corporate law firms" look to in selecting new associates.
I should hasten to add that making "it big at a top corporate law firm" will depend most upon how well you perform as an associate at the firm.
Living In Toronto. How Do I Revoke My Father'S Power Of Attorney Over Me?
First Of All: I Have No Idea How He Got Power Of Attorney Over Me Because I Never Signed Any Forms Or Gave Me Permission To Represent Me.
About 6 Years After He Got Power Of Attorney Over Me, He Tricked Me Into Signing A Form Waiving My Rights By Lying To Me About What The Content Of The Form Actually Was.
Now I Would Like To Revoke His Power Of Attorney Over Me And His Control Over My Life. I Do Not Have Any Psychological Or Mental Problems And Have An Above Average I.Q.
If this is true, you should see a lawyer. A power of attorney needs two witnesses. Generally, healthy intelligent people don't sign them except for specific reasons & then for short periods. I signed one once so my father could handle my affairs while I back packed through Europe & Asia in the days before email & cell phones.
If your father is using a power of attorney to control your money, go to your bank and demand to see the power of attorney and tell them you want to revoke it immediately.

How Has Illegal Immigration Artificially Inflated The Cost Of Goods And Services?
Consider This. With The Exception Of Cartels Such As Opec And The Diamond Industry Consumers Drive Prices On Goods And Services.
Due To The Artificially Lower Cost Of Produce As A Result Of Illegal Immigrant Workers Coupled With Artificially Lower Cost Products Due To Anything-But-Free Trade Agreements, Consumers Have Been Spending More For Other Products And Services Than They Could Normally Afford (For Decades).
How Has Lower Costs On Certain Items Via Illegal Laborers And Broken Trade Agreements Driven Up Costs In Other Areas, Which In Essence Undo The Ill Gotten Savings From Illegal Aliens And Cheap Foreign Labor?
The diamond industry is driven by consumer demand. Diamonds are a commodity, the price fluctuates.
Consider the fact that American citizens are out of jobs because illegal immigrants are taking them. Illegal immigrants don't pay taxes. Working legal citizens do. Illegal immigrants get paid crap, and in turn spend less on the economy. All this well counters the lower production and product cost.

The day Martial Law is declared, is the day you wake up and realize that your Constution/bill of Rights/Charter of Rites and Freedoms/etc. is really just about as valuable as that Kleenex you just spunked in... because rites are just privileges, and privileges can be revoked. Your government will do whatever it takes to stay in power, and they got the gunz...
Martial Law can be recognized by the increased presence of men with plexiglass shields and/or sub-machine-guns, a pale green fog that tastes, smells and feels like burning, random acts of hippy clubbing and indiscriminate shooting into crowds.
If your going to "get your loot on" its best to do it during the Preceding state of emergency, because once Martial Law is declared, the party's over. Usually once Martial Law is declared, its best to just stay home, tune into your local state-owned media outlet and do what they say. The punishment for most criminal offenses becomes summary execution, and most of the things you might do out in public become criminal offenses.
Looting = criminal offense = shot on sight
Exercising freedom of speech= criminal offense= disappeared (shot out of sight)
looking like you might be a 'rebel' = criminal offense = a. shot on sight or b. disappeared
On the street after curfew = criminal offense = shot on sight
Looking at the officer the wrong way = criminal offense = shot on sight
If you must go out, try not to wear that 'Rage Against the Machine' tee-shirt, red star...
Martial law is when the National Guard and/or Armed Forces are called upon by a Governor or President to restore order when the problem is too big for local law enforcement authorities.
If there is excessive violence and civil disorder in a certain place that the police are unable to cope with, the governor or president or mayor, may call for the national guard or army to quell the disturbances. The military usually declares a state of martial law. In this situation, a curfew is put in place, looters may be shot on sight if need be. Break the military law and you will be tried by a military court in most cases. This is a most extreme solution to an insurrection or revolution.
Martial law is not going to happen and it didn't even happen during Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. I worked New Orleans during Katrina and Martial Law was never declared. Sometimes it is necessary but it's not a threat to the American people. Remember, police officers are tax paying citizens with families also. They are not robots and they can think for themselves. It's not going to happen.
not just some stupid movie.
The suspension of normal civil law and its replacement by strict military control.
Imposed during crises, emergencies or civil unrest.
Military rules ALL.
suspension of rights and freedoms
Iraq, maybe, after the June 30 pseduo handover.
those are all the definitions
